It has been a while since I have last written a post about anything fashion. I want to start writing more about it which is why I came up with this idea for a new fashion series which I have called “Why You Should Add It To Your Wardrobe”. Every time I will choose a new category of fashion, like this time I have chosen graphic tees, and show you some great examples of it and explain why I think this piece of fashion belongs in your wardrobe! So now, let’s get this new series started!

I have found eight cool graphic tees and shown you them in the collage above. I have found graphic tees in all price ranges so there is a bit for everyone! The reason I think you should add graphic tees to your wardrobe is because they can be worn with anything and you can dress them up or just wear them if you feel like you got nothing to wear. I think you can wear a graphic tee with both jeans or a skirt. I feel like ripped jeans especially go well with graphic tees and maybe with a pair of heels and lots of jewellery to glam it up a bit. Another cool outfit idea would be pairing a cool graphic tee tucked into a pencil leather skirt, imagine the pink “Girls” tee from the collage above styled with the pencil leather skirt like that! The last outfit inspiration I want you to give you is to pair a graphic tee with a suit and a pair of heels.

What do you think about graphic tees and which one is your favourite from the collage? My favourite is the Ghost Gucci one and I have actually have had my eyes on it for a while now… Maybe I have just convinced myself to buy it?

TUTORIAL: DARK HALO EYESHADOW LOOK

TUTORIAL: DARK HALO EYESHADOW LOOK

I think a halo eyeshadow look is some of the most beautiful you can create! I don’t know why but there is just something about it! You can use shimmer shades for your halo eyeshadow look – like I did here – or only use matte shadows! I really wanted to use the BH Cosmetics x Shaaanxo Eyeshadow Palette (I used the old one) and thought the shades were perfect for a halo eye! If you want to know how I created this look, then keep on reading!

I started with priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and setting it with translucent powder. Then I layed down some of the shadow Silhouette (if you have the old palette like me, then you can find the shade names on her new The Remix palette) using the  Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out the edges of Silhouette, I lightly dipped the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shade Terracotta and used small circular motions. Take your time on this step.

With the Pointed Blender Brush again, I applied some of the Silhouette shade under my eyes and used the Natural Blender Brush dipped into Terracotta to blend it out. So I actually just mimicked what I just had done on my lid. With a sponge tip applicator, I apply the shade Avocado on my lid. I start out wide closest to my lashes and then I go smaller the closer I get to my crease. Since Avocado didn’t give me enough, I applied some of the shade Holy Grail on the very centre of Avocado using a sponge tip applicator again.

Now finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Skin Frost in the shade Crystal Ball.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask!

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Eyeshadow Look

Tutorial: Natural Everyday Eyeshadow Look

Even though colourful and wild eyeshadows look are fun and beautiful, it might not be what we want to wear every day and we might not have the time to be as creative as we want if we are going to school or to work. Here, I want to show you an easy and natural everyday look which didn’t take long to create! If you want to learn how to create this look, then keep on reading!

Before I applied any eyeshadow, I primed my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot and used a translucent powder to set it. Next, I applied the shadow Kokomo Cafe from Coastal Scents into my crease using the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To deepen up the crease, I applied some of the shadow Barista, again from Coastal Scents, with the same brush.

Now, I will apply some white shadow (I used the shade Snow Bunny from Coastal Scents) to 3/4 of the lid starting from the inner corner of the eye using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To deepen up the outer part of the eye, I used some of the Barista shade again with the same Pointed Blender Brush as I used with the white shadow. Make sure the brown and white shade are blended nicely together where they meet on the lid. With the same Pointed Blender Brush, I applied some Barista lightly under my eye as well.

Now, finish up your makeup! For brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara which is my current obsession! At last, I used the Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Crystal Ball as my highlight.

I hope you enjoyed this natural makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I hope you all had a wonderful start to the new year!

Tutorial: 2018 Winged Eyeliner

Tutorial: 2018 Winged Eyeliner

I thought I would do another makeup look for New Year’s Eve to give you some more inspiration. If you are looking for a fun makeup look to celebrate the new year, then what is better than this 2018 winged liner? If you are interested in which products I have used and how to do it, then keep on reading!

To start off this look I created a long wined liner as we want to have space enough to write “2018”. If you are in doubt of how to achieve a winged liner, then take a look at this easy tutorial I have made for you right here! For the eyeliner, I have used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner. Next, I write “2018” on the wing of the eyeliner. You want to make sure that the people who are looking at you are able to read the “2018”. I used the same eyeliner for this.

To make this look a bit more festive, I applied some gold on top of some of the black liner. You could use a gold eyeliner for this, but as I didn’t have one, I used the shade Golden Dawn from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit and mixed it with a bit of Inglot Duraline to transform it into a liquid and use it as my gold liner. To apply it, I used a toothpick as I didn’t have any brush which was small enough to give me the precision I would like. With the duraline, you can transform any shadow into a liquid and use it as a liner! So if you want this look to match your outfit, then simply use another glittery shadow or highlighter.

Now it is time to finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. For mascara, I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara and I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in Eclipse for my highlight.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Tutorial: Spotlight Cut Crease for New Year’s Eve

Tutorial: Spotlight Cut Crease for New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner which is why I wanted to give you some inspiration for the perfect glam look for the occasion! I have created a spotlight cut crease using the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Eyeshadow Palette. If you are interested in a full review of this palette, then you can read it all right here! If you want to learn how I created this look, then keep on reading!

As mentioned, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette. I started to lay down the shadow Swallow from the palette using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Here I don’t blend anything I just place the shadow in the shape I want but don’t bring it up too high as you, of course, want to blend out the edges. For that, we will use a lighter shade so I slightly dip my Blender Brush from Coastal Scents into the shadow Poison and with small circular motions, I blend out the edges.

To make the cut crease I use the LA Girl Pro Conceal in the shade Porcelain. For brush, I use the Small Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. After I have layed down the concealer, I set it with a bit of translucent powder to make sure it doesn’t transfer anywhere. On top of the concealer, I lay down some of the shadow Frosting using a sponge tip applicator. At the places I know I need to be precise, I use the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. I especially want to be precise at the top of the cut crease and around the edges as I want to make sure it looks blended into the blue shade. To complete the lid, I applied a thin line of black eyeliner as close to my upper lashline as possible. I here used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner. To complete the eyeshadow, I applied some of the Swallow shade under my lower lashline with the Pointed Blender Brush and blended out the edges using the Blender Brush.

Now, finish up your makeup! For my lashes I used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. For my highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse.

I hope you enjoyed this look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I hope you all have a wonderful New Year! Be careful! xx

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner with Christmas Lights

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner with Christmas Lights

A couple of days ago I showed you a full glam makeup look which I think would be stunning for the Holidays! But now, I need to share a more fun and creative makeup look with you, which I also think would be brilliant to wear for the Holidays! I have created a green winged liner and “decorated” it with Christmas lights! If this isn’t appropriate for the Holidays, then I don’t know what is hahahah! For this look, I have actually just used a bunch of different eyeliners! I made my lights a lot of different colours but you can, of course, chose the colours you want! If you are interested in knowing how to create this look, then keep on reading!

Before I started with all the liners, I applied some brown shadow to my crease to give my eyes some dimension. I used the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in the shade Kokomo Cafe and used the Natural Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to apply it. Now to the fun part! For the green winged liner, I used the Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in 86 and used the Small Angled Liner Brush from Coastal Scents to do the liner. If you are unsure of how to master a winged eyeliner, then I have made an easy tutorial for you right HERE!

Now it is time to make the black swirl around the winged eyeliner. This might look scary, but believe me; if you have steady hands then this is not going to be a problem for you! I have really shaky hands and I made it! I think the toughest part for me and my shaky hands was to make the lights as I am concentrating so hard and trying not to shake which just makes me shake even more! Don’t be frightened, start the swirl on top of the liner and then do little by little. No one says you have to make it in one go so take your time and visualise the next part of the swirl before doing it. I have here used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner.

For the “lights” you can choose any colours you want! I searched for “Christmas lights” on google and saw a lot of lights with this pattern so that is what I have recreated. I have used the NYX Vivid Brights Liners in the shades Halo, Delight, Fire, Envy, and Sapphire. Now all you have to do is finish up your makeup! For my mascara, I have used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my brows, I have used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in Brown and I used the shade White Sand from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit as my highlight.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on this funny makeup look! If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all Happy Holidays! xxx

Tutorial: Grey and Silver Glitter Cut Crease

Tutorial: Grey and Silver Glitter Cut Crease

The Holidays are some of the most festive days of the year! I wanted to make a very festive look for the Holidays to give you some inspiration of what you could do yourself. I have made this silver glitter cut crease using the Coastal Scents Hot Pots and the Make Up Store Eyedust in Surface. The Coastal Scents Hot Pots are very affordable single shadows with almost 400 different to choose from, if you are interested, you can read my full review of the Hot Pots right here! If you want to learn how to create this look yourself, then keep on reading!

Before I use any eyeshadow, I will start off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and set it with translucent powder. I will use the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Kokomo Cafe as my transition shade and apply it in the crease with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush. The next step is optional, but to make sure I don’t blend the shadows too high, I will apply some translucent powder around the eyes in the shape I want the eyeshadow. For this, I use the Luxie Large Shader Brush.

Next, I will go into the crease with the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Ash Grey with the same Deluxe Crease Brush as before. To deepen up the crease, I will lay down some of the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Incognito with the Coastal Scents Pointed Blender Brush and blend it out using the Deluxe Crease Brush. To help the dark shadow blend, you can dip your brush into the Ash Grey shadow again. If you applied some of the translucent powder around your eyes, then now is the time to remove it with circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the shadow are blended.

Now it is time to cut the crease! I use the LA Girl Pro Conceal in the shade Porcelain with the Coastal Scents Small Foundation Concealer Brush. A good tip for during a cut crease is to start by applying the concealer as close to your upper lashes as possible and then slightly look up, then you will know where your cut crease should go. Before I apply any glitter I made a winged eyeliner (see my easy tutorial for a winged eyeliner right here!) using the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner.

Now I will apply the Make Up Store Eye Dust in the shade Surface using a sponge tip applicator. Reapply the liner anywhere the glitter might have been applied. Touch up the Incognito shadow around the cut crease with the Pointed Blender Brush. Be sure to use a light hand. Now finish up your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in Brown. For my lashes, I used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and for my highlight, I used the shade Snow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. On my lips, I am wearing the ColourPop Lippie Pencil in Love Bug and Jeffree Star Cosmetics Lip Ammunition in Unicorn Blood.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and remember, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask! I wish you all Happy Holidays!

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner

Tutorial: Winged Eyeliner

A winged eyeliner can be a great touch to add to a lot of different makeup looks. If you are new to makeup it might be hard to get it right and maybe you don’t know how to start or how to do it which is why I wanted to create a short step by step tutorial on how I do my winged eyeliner. You can use these basic steps and alter it the way you want so the shape and thickness of the wing suit your eye the best.

For this tutorial, I have used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner, but you can use any type of eyeliner you want and feel the most comfortable with. I start by applying my eyeliner to my lashline from the inner corner to 3/4 of the lashline. I don’t go all the way out as I don’t know where my wing will be yet. I now make the first line of the wing. I start the line from where I want the wing to end and then I drag it towards my eye where I want the wing to end. It doesn’t have to be perfect as we always can clean it up later!

I will now make the top line of the wing. As we want the wing to be sharp, I will start this line a bit further down rather than at the top of the bottom line of the wing we just made before. It is best to make your wing thin at first as you always can make it thicker, but if you have eyeshadow on you can’t really use concealer to make the wing thinner. So start out thin and then go thicker if you want. Now fill in the wing.

Now it is time to clean up! I start by cleaning up the top part of the wing; I will fill in any gaps and make the wing and the liner on the lashline look more fluent by thickening the eyeliner at the lashline where the wing starts. To clean up the bottom part of the wing, I will use my Dermacol Foundation (which I use as a concealer) and my Pointed Detailer Brush from Real Techniques. I will go from the inner part of my eye and out to get a clean line. After you have used concealer to perfect the wing, remember to blend it out.

If you want a longer wing then start the first line of the wing further away from your eye. If you want a thicker wing then make it thicker by applying more eyeliner to the top part of the wing and at the lashline.

Now apply the rest of your makeup! For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown. For mascara, I used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. For my highlight, I used the shade Snow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. If you have any questions, then don’t be afraid to ask!

Tutorial: Matte orange eyeshadow look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

Tutorial: Matte orange eyeshadow look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

The Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of my favourite palettes! I adore all of the shades that it comes with (especially Buon Fresco) and I love how pigmented they are and how easy the shadows are to work with. I think you can create an endless amount of looks with this palette. Here I have created an easy matte orange eyeshadow look, keep on reading if you want to learn how I made this look using the palette.

To start off I primed my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and I am setting my primer with some translucent powder to make sure the shadows I put on top will blend nicely. The first shade I am using from the Modern Renaissance palette is Burnt Orange. I use the Deluxe Crease Brush from Real Techniques to apply the shadow to my crease.

The next step is optional. I like to place some translucent powder around my eye where I will be applying eyeshadow to make sure I keep the shape I want and don’t blend the shadow too high. I use the Large Shader Brush from Luxie to apply the translucent powder.

Then I place the shade Realgar on my lid using the Shading Brush from Real Techniques. I will blend out the edges of Realgar with the Deluxe Crease Brush again. To give the eye some more dimension I will darken the outer V with the shade Cyprus Umber using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Only apply a tiny amount of product to your brush so you can make sure it doesn’t get too dark.

If you have applied the translucent powder around your eyes, then now is the time to remove it. I will use the same Large Shader Brush to remove the powder. I go in with small circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the eyeshadow are blended.

For the lower lashline, I will start by applying some of the shade Realgar with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I will wipe my brush clean and use the shade Golden Ochre to buff it out. The next step is also optional. I applied a wing eyeliner but you can stop here and finish your makeup. I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner for my wing. It is an okay eyeliner but I think the applicator is a bit too big to get a sharp wing as I want.

You can now finish your makeup. For my brows, I used the Tony Moly Auto Eye Brow in Brown. I curled my lashes with the Eylure London Heated Eyelash Curler and used the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. For my browbone and inner corner highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x MannyMUA Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse and applied it with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. I lined my lips with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Pencil and used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Lip Ammunition in the shade Celebrity Skin.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look – let me know if you’ve tried to recreate it! You can read my full review and see swatches of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette right here!

Tutorial: Easy red makeup look using the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Eyeshadow Palette

Tutorial: Easy red makeup look using the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Eyeshadow Palette

Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my favourite brands! Their liquid lipsticks have always been one of my favourite formulas and the quality of their eyeshadow is to die for! The shadows are super pigmented and very easy to work with as they are very blendable. Jeffree told, that the Androgyny Palette was his version of a neutral palette which I think is very inspiring as it will make you think different and create more colourful makeup looks. Keep on reading to learn how I made this red makeup look using the Androgyny Palette!

Before I start applying any eyeshadow I will apply my eyeshadow primer, the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and set it with translucent powder. As the first step, I will apply the shade Safe Word from the Androgyny Palette into my crease using the Deluxe Crease Brush from Real Techniques. Next, I will lay down some of the shadow Fetish in my crease with the Shading Brush from Real Techniques. I will then softly blend out Fetish using the Deluxe Crease Brush again.

To make sure you keep the shape you want for your eyeshadow, you can apply some translucent powder on your browbone and around the eye. With this technique, you will be sure that the area around your eyeshadow stays clean and shadow-free! Here I actually use baby powder and apply it with the Large Shader Brush from Luxie.

Next, I will apply the white shadow Snow Bunny from Coastal Scents to 3/4 of my lid with the Shading Brush. This shadow is not so pigmented so you will need to reapply it a couple of times to get the payoff you want. While applying Snow Bunny to the lid you want to make sure that the red shade, Fetish, stays strong in the crease. If the shade fades a bit then put the tiniest amount onto your brush, I used the Base Shadow Brush from Real Techniques, and blend it softly into your crease.

To give the eye some more dimension we want to darken the outer V of the eye. I used the shade Dominatrix on the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. You want to apply the white shadow first so the dark shade will blend easier into the light shade which will give a beautiful gradient effect. If you apply the darker shade in the outer V first then it will be harder to blend out and get that seamless effect we want.

If you have applied the translucent powder around your eye, then now is the time to remove it. I use the same brush to remove it as I applied it with – the Large Shader Brush. I softly remove it with circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the eyeshadow look soft and blended. Then I will dip into Fetish again with the Pointed Blender Brush (make sure your brushes are clean every time you dip into a new shade) and softly buff it under my lower waterline. Make sure to use a light hand.

Now apply your brows, lashes, browbone- and inner corner highlight. I used the Tony Moly Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown for my brows. I curled my lashes with the Eylure London Heated Eyelash Curler and applied a coat of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. For my browbone and inner corner highlight, I used the shade White Sand from the Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills and applied it with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. For my lips, I used the Limecrime Matte Velvetines in the shade Buffy.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! You can read my full review and see swatches of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette right here!
